Rotation report: Coming up aces first time through

One week into the season, the rotation has performed as advertised. Perhaps even better. Tonight, Cliff Lee makes his second start of the season against Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Tomorrow, it is righthander Vance Worley against tricky lefty Jon Niese. And on Sunday, Cole Hamels will face Mike Pelfrey.
